Dramatic video from Turkey & Syria shows the moments two deadly earthquakes hit & the race against time to rescue survivors trapped in the rubble.
Over 40 aftershocks rattled the rural region nestled in the Alborz Mountains, and residents rushed out of their homes in fear.
The quake was felt across Puerto Rico and was the strongest to hit the island in recent years.
“This was a very good wakeup call, essentially,” an emergency official said before urging residents to think about preparedness.
A widely felt magnitude 5.4 quake before dawn Friday was the strongest aftershock thus far.
The Red Cross said it was focusing relief efforts on an estimated 20,000 people yet to get any assistance.
The death toll climbed to 55 and is expected to rise further.
We, in Nepal today, are injured people. We have lost much. But not all. And to heal, we must get in touch with that portion of our lives that is not yet broken. In this, we have much to learn from the Haiti earthquake, where the largest aftershock came eight days after the main earthquake.
Everyone, cancer or not, deals with aftershocks. They can ripple through our lives causing anxiety, depression and a host of other issues until we confront them. After a huge catastrophe in your life it unfortunately doesn't end there; we have to deal with the debris around us.
